Attitude is everything
THE STATE OF YOUR LIFE IS NOTHING MORE THAN A REFLECTION OF
YOUR STATE OF MIND
One of the most important choices you must make every day is the type of attitude you project to everyone around you. A positive, optimistic attitude will empower you and set the tone for great success and fulfilment. In my position as the Health Sciences coordinator I feel this is especially true at the beginning of each year as the new students all fresh faced and eager sit before me!
Things go wrong …..like the timetable and it has to change….how we react to that defines us.
The many good and bad choices you make throughout your life will determine the depth of character you get to develop. As you know, your attitude and depth of character are the two building blocks of sustainable success. So when you invest time to build a meaningful character and you strive to project a positive attitude to the world, you empower yourself to consistently make better choices and you project a persona to the world, which people want to associate with . It is far easier to invest time around positive, energetic people than it is to be drained by negative, pessimistic people.
Make the conscious decision to apply sufficient energy and effort to change yourself from who you currently are, into who you need or want to be. This process becomes possible for you, when you take responsibility for changing your life and you consistently take steps to project a positive attitude and develop the strength of character necessary for success. Remember that you attract success by the person you become.
As you invest into the development of your character, you will get to project a far more appealing face to the world and as such the people around you will begin to respond far more positively to you.
Your Character is always changing
Your character is not something that is stagnant and unchangeable; it is something that is shaped by the way you choose to respond to everything that happens to you throughout your life.
Choose to Strengthen or Weaken your Character
You get to choose to strengthen or weaken your character by how you choose to respond to everything in your environment. There are really only two choices, you can make: you choose to be a “winner” or you choose to be a “whiner“
“Winners” are positive, believe in the potential and are in an empowered state eager for success.
“ Whiners ” are negative , always looking for someone else to blame, they have no self-confidence and are completely dis-empowered.
You become a Winner” by choosing to nurture positive qualities within yourself. Think of the analogy of gathering wood to build a huge bonfire. When building a bonfire,you need to search diligently for the right wood and then light a flame under the wood, until the wood catches fire and burns properly. The same is true for building the character and attitude of a “winner”. You must diligently search every day for the fuel to feed your character and attitude. Once you have gathered enough fuel, you must ignite the flame of your passion under the fuel and commit to keep searching for and adding great fuel to the fire.
LIFE IS 10% WHAT HAPPENS TO ME AND 90% HOW I REACT TO IT
